Rom.9:25-28 – As He says also in Hosea:
“I will call them My people, who were not My people,
And her beloved, who was not beloved.”
“And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them,
‘You are not My people,’
There they shall be called sons of the living God.”
Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel:
“Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea,
The remnant will be saved.
For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness,
Because the LORD will make a short work upon the earth.”
Amazing prophetic events are happening all around us as the end of the age draws near. I think some of the most important of those things are not even seen on the news. The fighting in the Middle East is basically something that has gone on for thousands of years but the real battle is for souls and is going on behind the scenes. Without getting into a long explanation the sons of Abraham and the sons of Isaac are at the center of this fight. Ishmael and Isaac as well as Esau and Jacob are still in the mix. What I think will happen in the days ahead, and is probably already happening, is that the sons of Ishmael and the sons of Esau will experience a spiritual awakening. I expect a large number of Arabs and Muslims to come to Christ suddenly. I also believe the Lord is working on the sons of Abraham and Isaac. The Jewish world will also have a sudden harvest as many call upon their Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, as the tragic circumstances ramp up.
Today’s passage in Romans describes the Lord reaching the Gentiles and then the Jews with a sudden and surprising work of salvation. It could be my speculation but I think the age of the Gentiles is ending with a sudden and enormous harvest of the sons of Ishmael and Esau. This is happening as the Muslim world becomes disillusioned with the murder and hate that has been taking over in their world.
At the same time the nation and people of Israel are coming under increasing pressure in the world today. Paul prophesied that though many of the Jewish people in his time had rejected the Lord there would be a time when they would suddenly turn to the Lord. Pay close attention, these are the days we have been waiting for.
